Early in the twentieth century the publisher A. & C. Black published a series of small books of regional water-color paintings. Two of these are combined in this Plum Park Press edition English Water-colours. The two subjects are Hampshire Water-colours painted by Wilfred Ball, and Cotswolds Water-colours painted by G. F. Nichols. Both artists were well known and admired at the time, and of course they chose the most picturesque sights for their paintings.
The book presents all 38 paintings from the original books, printed in the largest size possible in the miniature format on smooth, heavy paper.
English Water-colours is bound in dark red cloth, with a dust jacket carrying one or the paintings from the book. It consists of 80 pages, and has overall dimensions of 76 x 76 mm (3 x 3 inches). The edition is limited to 20 copies, priced at $45 plus $7 for postage and handling.
